I know you've all, most of you have heard, about the bug in "The Mechanist" quest. The MAIN quest of the dlc Automatron. Which I recently bought, Fallout 4 and all dlc's for $59.99. Why! Why is there still a bug, a well known bug in this dlc? It has kept me from playing the damn game for 2 days so far, thinking of what to do.
I've heard All the supposed fixes. I had beat all the robots, and the Mechanist was just walking around doing not much. I tlc'd underneath the floor, oh wow there's a stuck robot!
I thought i had it aced, well, after that, Mechanist said some stuff to me, and then he attacked again.. A small wave of robots, and grenades and lightning bolts.. And he's now stuck there! doing that constantly... No more hidden robots, i tried my best tlc'ing all around.. Nothing i can seem to do.
I feel i got 4 options.
tlc'ing thru to the elevator, riding it up, leaving the building, and just dealing with the quest hanging on my pipboy.
I could replay the whole thing, not wanting to do that... But I might, god that was a Fight!
I could reload a midfight save i got.. :\
Or I could reload a save at the door to the lair and repeat the fight... I already had Ada upgraded btw.. :\ And once i got in there i may have shot at the ceiling at the bots up there... I also threw grenades at the beginning of the fight. lol.. dam i did all the wrong things... Man this is maddening..
What a shame, a major game making company, that is really good in their game ideas etc, can fail so bad on execution. And worse, not fix the damn thing after 5 years. I still love ya Bethesda. BUT.............. sigh...
